Wedding planning: A black and white ceremony

Create a black and white wedding to perfection

Create a black and white wedding to perfection

Those who love the old Hollywood feel or just the simplicity of black and white can capture all of this and more while planning a wedding. A black and white ceremony and reception can mix elegance with a standout appeal – plus, the wedding planning involved is quite simple.

A beautiful white wedding dress can be spiced up with a black sash, shoes or simple embroidery to emphasize the theme. The groom can look dapper in a black tuxedo with a white vest and cummerbunds to play up the color scheme.

The theme can be extended to other aspects of the wedding including the bouquet. The perfect accents to add that little something is simple silver additions or pearls strung throughout the bouquet.

To take the theme that much further, ask guests to only wear black or white to the event. A number of A-list celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have chosen this type of themed wedding in which their guests were only allowed to wear one of the two colors.
